Movement Needed.

Umk, my low carbin' has been doing great the past three days. I actually haven't felt very hungry and things that used to tempt me.. just haven't. I have been praying so much for the ability to control myself - I think God may have finally blessed me with it because it has been rather easy. I am not really doing Atkins - my diet leans more towards South Beach. But, I don't make myself eat every 3 hours - I just eat when my stomach is hungry.

I need to start working out regularly... so I called up my best friend (which is no where near as big as I am) and asked her if she would consider signing up at the gym with me. She said she would love too. So... we are going to try to go today and sign up. This gym offers a lot of things to do from aerobics classes, swimming, to weight lifting. So, it shouldn't be too hard for me to find something that I like to do. Plus, it is a 24 hour gym. I figure if I can't get away all day to the gym the worst case scenario is that I wait until my husband gets home and then go. But, hopefully my girlfriend will be able to go with me most of the time. Her and I rarely get to spend time together due to her job and my kids. I am hoping that this will be something we can do together and I can look forward to seeing her and talking my heart out.

So, I think for my first month at the gym I am going to make a goal of going 3 times a week for at least 30 mins each time. Next year this time, I wanna be 100 lbs lighter!!

Hi Abi :)

Congratulations on your new job and I'm so glad for you that you feel comfortable there with your new co-workers. Believe me I understand how that feeling can be. HUG

It's a great thing that you and your friend will be able to work out together. I think it will give you the necessary push to remain going to the gym.

That cruise sounds fantastic - if it were me who had heard about it I would have said the same thing that you did about losing 100 pounds by then. LOLOLOL :D Seriously Abi, if you start losing weight now, it will be better for you by the time you go for two reasons: one, you will feel that you've done something positive for your body and two, if you DO put some weight back on during the cruise, you'll be that much closer to your goal weight since you would have already lost quite a bit. ;) :D

Have a Happy Thanksgiving and all the best to you and your family.
